6th November 2019

We’re really excited to announce that our fundraising efforts for Chartwell Children’s Cancer Trust have enabled us to fund an AV1 No Isolation Robot.

And we’d like to introduce Bette the Bot as we’ve named it, who has already been assigned to a young man studying for his A levels.  We wish him success and a full recovery.

This new pioneering technology provides sick children with a vital connection to school, education and normality.  The robot sits in the classroom and enables the child to interact to whatever extent they feel able.

And now to the November meeting, where three tables of businesswomen spent an enjoyable couple of hours exchanging ideas and introductions over lunch.

It was a pleasure to welcome back Helen Colechin from HR Dept who was a member for many years before the marvellous Maria stepped into her shoes.  Great to also see Acupuncturist, Sue Mason and Artist, Zsu Foroszan.

And it’s wonderful news for our Mortgage Adviser, Jo Jingree from Mortgage Confidence . Jo is in The Times’ 2020 Guide to the UK’s Top Financial Advisers.  Go Jo!!!!!!

The 10 minutes…

Photographer, Ally Whitlock, revealed her plan to separate her wedding and business photography.  Stonelock Photography will continue as the go- to provider for truly beautiful and memorable wedding imagery.

And…drum roll please…. Business photography will now be provided via Ally Whitlock Photography.

Ally’s aim is to help business to tell their story through photography.  She is also keen to work with business people on their personal branding images.
